1918_Sunbeam_05

All Sunbeams are an absolute pleasure to ride. That’s why they have been the most popular upmarket bicycle in British history. They were sought-after in 1918 when this machine was manufactured …and are still just as sought-after now, 94 years later.

This particular machine is the rarest frame size – 22″. As you can see in the Sunbeam catalogue page further down the page, the company states that it is suitable for riders of height 5′ 3″ …though i do not agree with their calculations; I think riders of that height had such a limited choice in 1918 that this may well have been their best option, but this would still have been a tall frame for them.
